My girls and I watched the new remastered version of ET recently. It was their first time seeing this “classic” film of my childhood. Honestly, I think it’s a little weird, especially the government agents and scientists dressed like men from Mars.

But, it’s a moving film, nonetheless. We all three cried our eyes out when ET “died”.

But, of course the most famous line from ET has been a wonderful reminder.

Phone home.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
